I am extra jealous as the Blue is my favorite color.

Funny about the Blue: like the Red, it is a bright color in bright light, and a dark blue in lower light. So one of her favorite colors and also one of mine, which is a different shade. I still prefer mine's Scarlet Ember, but the blue is indeed nice. The blue stitching in the seats was a surprise to me, and that's nice too. And I'm really glad I leaned on Nissan Corporate so hard and often when I was in the GLAB, to get Around View back in the SV.

Hopefully this is the last Leaf we'll ever need to lease/buy, unless I pick up a cheap one as a second car if having just one doesn't work out.

The one feature that could make me want to change is if a Leaf (or Niro) came out with Solar on the roof which fed the traction battery.

Interesting trick. TIL.

I was confused by your other post and thought you replaced your 40 kWh Leaf with a Plus but now I'm not sure... Sounds like there are now your housemate's Plus and your non-Plus?

Just bought our first Leaf. 2017 SV in blue with 25K on the clock. We picked up the car with only 8 bars so we are currently in the process of getting the warranty replacement. A week ago I knew very little about EVs but based on the information that has been shared here I felt confident making the decision to purchase the vehicle. I have a feeling this is going to be the first of many EVs in the house.

Correct. We have agreed to try making do with just her car - which will become "our" car - when I turn mine in. I can also choose, if I can get a lease extension (which I think I can, to "wait for the Ariya") to make the lease payments from my own funds after next April. I do much prefer the way my car drives, oddly enough: the accelerator and brake programming are a bit more aggressive, making my car feel faster and lighter.
